ChalkTalk Video: Why Organizations Are Struggling with Getting Applications to the Cloud

Every organization is trying to develop a cloud strategy, but as they try to move workloads to the cloud, they are running into the wall known as the CAP theorem. The CAP theorem says it is impossible for a distributed data store to simultaneously provide more than two out of three guarantees: consistency, availability, partition tolerance. Most on-premises storage systems, for example, deliver excellent consistency and partition tolerance but not cross-region availability, but most cloud storage architectures only deliver multi-region availability and partition tolerance.

In this ChalkTalk Video Ron Bianchini CEO and Founder of Avere Systems joins Storage Switzerland to discuss why the principles behind the CAP theorem make cloud transition difficult and how to get around the theorem and deliver all three guarantees.

Eleven years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
